The experienced and knowledgeable staff at Brooks Shoe Service, featured in Chicago magazine, expertly repairs and customizes footwear. The dedicated staff buffs out scuffs, scrapes, and soot with cleaning and polishing services (up to $25), and replaces stiletto spikes snapped off during mountaineering expeditions with heel repairs (up to $25). To expand an overly snug pair of loafers, patrons can seek relief with a stretching service ($20–$30). Cobblers can evict stains from suede shoes ($15–$35) or armor kicks in a protective sole (up to $50), which covers shoe bottoms with a nearly invisible protective layer to repel wear and tear and any witch hexes.

Representing the third generation of his family to operate Brooks Shoe Service, which opened in 1919, Mike Morelli has been servicing shoes for more than 25 years. He and his team not only repair minor footwear damage, such as torn linings, broken zippers, or faulty GPS systems, but can also completely rebuild shoes to original specifications and craft custom pairs for ultimate comfort. The crew offers convenient curbside service and pickup and delivery within the Loop and Gold Coast areas. Chicago magazine mentioned Morelli's shop in a 2009 feature, naming it a favorite of costumers at Goodman Theatre and Lyric Opera of Chicago.
